Bionex Technology products have revolutionized environmental remediation through its proprietary in-situ and ex-situ treatment of petroleum hydrocarbons in soil and groundwater. The addition of Bionex products enhances the bioremediation process, allowing complete degradation of contamination to be accomplished in previously unachievable time frames.

While the conventional methods depend on the simple release of oxygen to biodegrade organic contaminants, Bionex products introduce enzymes that chemically increase the metabolic processes of petroleum degrading bacteria. As a result, the bacterial populations which are indigenous to the contaminated soil and water increase. Our products chemically change the composition of the petroleum contaminants, resulting in breakdown compounds of carbon dioxide and water. The process not only reduces remediation time frames from years to months, but can save thousands of dollars in clean-up costs. Read on to take a closer look at the bioremediation techniques Bionex products can help implement for your next project.


Remediation Techniques

In-situ Bioremediation

In an effort to prevent off-site disposal and transfer of long-term liability associated with land disposal, in-situ bioremediation is used. In-situ bioremediation means that the bioremediation process occurs while leaving the soil or water in its natural location. Like those used in Bionex products, containment eating bacteria remove contaminants on-site and reduce long-term liability, along with hauling and disposal costs.

Ex-situ Bioremediation

Ex-situ bioremediation means the contaminated soil or water is taken to another location for bioremediation. Bioremediation products can be used through the use of a site-specific delivery system to prevent damage to existing underground utilities and structures.  Ex-situ bioremediation offers effective treatment of the contamination while minimizing site disruptions.

Dig and Haul Remediation

Contaminated soil removal and remediation is a practical environmental clean-up method for construction sites with ample space. When the extent of soil contamination is relatively shallow, the soil can be removed, and geologists then replace the polluted area with certifiably clean backfill. This approach tends to be most optimal when the chemicals of concerns are thicker oils or heavy metals, and where the digging volume is relatively small—for example, a vacant field with an oil spill area spanning 30-feet by 10-feet by 5-feet.
